Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Memorial(CSMM), when completed, will be a cultural anchor for the great city of Mumbai, by honoring the 17th-century ruler of Western India, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who valiantly fought and defeated foreign invaders. We were part of the winning design team that won this international design competition. The memorial includes a statue of Shivaji Maharaj in the Arabian Sea, off the coast of Mumbai’s iconic Marine Drive. The proposed statue will have a height of around 192 meters, which on completion will be the tallest statue in the world. To respond to the emotional connect that CSMM provides to many, we designed lighting with an evocative and reverential approach. To light the CSMM statue, lighting fixtures will be installed in customized bunkers and provided with special optics and color temperature to light all the way up to the apex at 192 meters.
